JPS Continues to Offer Expanded Learning Opportunities with Afterschool Enrichment
September 21, 2022
JPS provides afterschool programming across all feeder patterns and for each school, ensuring equitable access to high-quality out-of-school time experiences. Beginning October 10, each program will offer a host of enrichment activities provided by our afterschool partners, homework assistance, academic tutoring, meals, and transportation. Enrichment activities include, but are not limited to, sports, dance, exercise, visual arts, performing arts, STEM, college readiness, career readiness, financial literacy, test prep, ACT prep, social-emotional learning, mentoring, healthy eating, music production, dramatic arts, and much more!
Afterschool programs expand learning opportunities for young people of all ages. These creative and fun spaces allow scholars the opportunity to meet new friends, explore new interests, and learn exciting things. Afterschool offers hands-on projects and team-building activities that foster resilience, confidence, and healthy relationships. These programs are staffed by certified teachers and caring mentors who are trained to help young people develop important life skills like coping with stress and using their voices. Quality programs are tailored to meet each scholar’s academic, physical, and social-emotional needs.
